Needless to say, meeting this deadline means suspending most my other work (and everything else in my life; I’m considering hiring someone to take over my respiratory duties – a ghost-breather – so I can save all that time I spend breathing in and out) for the next two months. You’ll still see me on Facebook, I’ll take a few wedding date clients, and I’ll continue selling automated reports. But my twice-monthly essays will mostly be reruns, full wedding date reports are out, etc. And I’m still on a break from doing regular readings, which I originally took with the hope of finishing my Mars report/book.
Fate intervened, however, and here I am, up to my ears in remedial astrology. Oddly enough, I’m enjoying the writing. Any astrologer can write a basic astrology book – it’s stuff we know as well as our ABC’s. The challenge is in presenting it in an engaging and useful way – a challenge I think I’m meeting only intermittently at this point. Reclaiming beginner’s mind is a challenge, but one I’m enjoying so far.
Wish me luck, friends, and I’ll keep you posted on further developments. Meanwhile, keep an eye on the “Progress Report” widget in the right-hand margin to monitor my word count (initially, I’ve set this for the goal I have to reach by September 14), cheer me on, and laugh loudly yet compassionately at my struggle.
